|Plasmonic fluorescence enhancement of poly(3-hexylthiophene) for organic solar cell applications
||Solar cells are becoming an attractive alternative energy source considering the
need to lessen dependence on nonrenewable energy sources such as fossil fuels. Organic
photovoltaics (PVs) are inexpensive to produce, flexible, and eliminate many pot...
|Synthesis of Ag:SiO2:Ag Core:spacer:shell nanoparticles via the hydrogen reduction method and the characterization of their optical properties
||Plasmonic nanostructures are of considerable interest due to their unique
mechanism for light interaction and the considerable number of applications that result
from, or are enhanced by, these interactions. Extensive work has been reported on the
|Synthesis and characterization of silica/silver multilayer nanoparticles and their application in surface enhanced spectroscopy
||This research is focused on determining the most effective silver shell growth method formultilayered metallic nanoparticles, and determining the plausibility of using embedded[Ru(bpy)3]2+ as an internal standard for surface enhanced Raman spectrosco...
